Drawdown Bar Film Applicators


SS Bar Film App

These 440 grade Stainless Steel Bird Type Bars are the highest quality and easiest to clean and maintain due to their simple design and rugged construction.

The theoretical wet film thickness is etched onto every drawdown bar. The theoretical wet film thickness is roughly one-half the actual gap clearance. If you have a gap clearance of 6 mils, the theoretical wet film thickness etched on the bar applicator is 3 mils.

 

 

Features

  • Packaged in a handy reuseable storage box to help prevent damage
  • Made of 440-grade stainless steel, ground to tight tolerances for repeated use
  • Every drawdown bar can be certified in the lab with a NIST traceable calibration certificate at an additional price
  • Shipping Weight: 0.7 kg (1.5 lbs)
  • Standards: ASTM D823, D3258; Federal Spec. TT-P-29, TT-E-50BA, PD-220A; FTMS 141a; JAN JAN-P-630, JAN-P-700; Military Spec. MIL P-13341
We cannot guarantee that you will draw-down the theoretical wet film thickness. The drawdown process consists of many variables. The actual wet film thickness can vary from 50% to 90% of the gap depending on the gap clearance.
